OBJECTIVE The aims were (1) to investigate the effect of hypertention on left ventricular dilatation and haemodynamic alterations following acute myocardial infarction in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) and normotensive rats (WKY); (2) to compare haemodynamic indices between the two groups; (3) to assess whether the angiotensin II type 1 receptor antagonist (AIIA), TCV-116, prevented left ventricular dilatation after myocardial infarction; and (4) to compare the effect of AIIA with that… CONTINUE READING
